Washington, United States: 

As many as 1,500 American citizens may still need to be evacuated from Afghanistan, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday, adding that the Taliban had pledged to allow departures after foreign troops leave.

“We are aggressively reaching out to them multiple times a day through multiple channels of communication… to determine whether they still want to leave,” Blinken told reporters.

Blinken said the State Department estimates there were about 6,000 Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan when the airlift began Aug. 14, and that about 4,500 of them have been evacuated so far.

He said about 500 have been contacted with instructions on when and how to get to the chaotic Kabul airport to catch evacuation flights.

In addition, 1,000 or perhaps fewer are being contacted regularly to determine whether they still want to leave. Blinken said some of these may already have left the country, some may want to remain and some may not actually be American citizens.
